    In sure we did plenty
    Tanguy showed some desire coming from lower level at Guingamp
    Lo celso has the “failed” time at PSG
    Sessegnon at the time was a young prospect wanted by a lot of sides
    But…. Maybe we paid them too much too quickly
    The salary thing was a motivation IMO for the Poch team as they all had new improved contracts in that spell
    Paying Tanguy £200k me a she has made it already, and he really has a long way to go to make it

    Watford's Emmanuel Dennis and fellow striker Victor Osimhen have both dropped out of Nigeria's squad for the Africa Cup of Nations.

    The Hornets have reportedly refused to release Dennis, who has scored eight Premier League goals this season.


    So we could refuse Lo Celso permission to go in Jan, same with Romero too

    Argentina haven’t made the mistakes yet

    Don't think that is very fair on Nigeria. If I were Nigerian I would be pretty livid

    We’ve been more than accommodating to him this season, he should stay and help his club.

    hopefully he won’t be our issue by then

    Highlights of Lo Celso from today's game. Look at the skill, look at the effort, look at the sheer determination to win the ball back! What a player!

    I am more than livid. To miss out on one of the top strikers in Africa for our top tournament in our rival's backyard because of this - I will have long memories on this. Nigeria is hopefully about to qualify for the World Cup - it will be interesting seeing what these players and their clubs say then.

    In Watford's case, Troost Ekong is also there. Troost is with the Nigerian team. The Nigerian Federation sent invites to both players at the same time.

    I am fully in support of Watford being relegated at the end of the year.

    Nigeria messed up. They didn't call him up by the deadline. They called him up afterwards. Watford said no (as is there right). He hadn't played for nigeria for months.

    That is what Watford said. My sources within the NFF said differently. Nigeria sent invites to the players at Watford. Only Emmanuel didnt show up. Inside news is that Emma doesnt want to play for Nigeria and worked with Watford to pull off this crap. Nigeria will never force this situation but will rather note it for the future.

    This has happened before in the case of a certain player. When a member of the NFF was asked about inviting the player again, his response was 'if the player likes, let him score on the moon - no invite'.

    No point in fighting for a player who wasn't interested in coming as well. You get him and he affects squad. My only concern is Osimhen. It is weird.

    Had very high hopes for GLC, but he needs to go.

    I'd be surprised if we couldnt find a Spanish team to take him on loan given his Argie appearances and Betis background. Loan him out, hope he plays well and then puts himself in the shop window for the summer

    I don't like Watford. The way they go through managers it is a joke club.

    Apart from one, they all hit the first defender,but that's not the point. Again, his quality, that some claim he has, and workrate was none existing. Add to that, he's mostly injured. Pointless player, and he needs to be binned off ASAP! Problem is, who'd want him?

    But he did manage an assist and 6 key passes
    I agree he needs to go but he did show more than a few out there which is why he was kept on for longer
    He also got MOTM on who scored which I’m surprised about
    What was noticeable was that once he had forwards on the pitch he looked to pass their way… wasn’t rocket science really

    Imagine if he’d had the chance to work with them…BTW, Sess was committee not him. I think we should’ve kept Foyth - he can pass and play football!
